Could possibly be the most frightening film of all times!!!
19 November 2001 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

This anti-drug film is the second in the "Mods trilogy" the first is "They call us Mods".It´s the same persons as in the first film: The very young people has now grown up but now they take drugs and many of them dies.Kenta and Stoffe(they meet one time in the film and plays bowling) is no longer best friends.Stoffe dies in this film because of drugs.The last film in the trilogy is about Kenta´s and Stoffe´s children.

It´s really a unique Documentary and I think that you should show this films in schools.The music is also fantastic.Could possibly be the most frightening film of all times,it left me speechless.
